Welcome to another edition of Flower Friday!
Lets jump right in today with our Vintage Grunge Paper Flower!
This guy is so easy! Here's what you need!
- EK Success Retro Flower punches in three sizes (Extra Large, Large and Small or medium)
- 1 Small Brad
- Paper Piercer
- Your Choice of Glimmer or Water
- Vintage Photo Distress Ink (or a complimentary color to your cardstock)
- Blending Tool (or whatever you currently use to apply your distress inks)
- Heat tool
Ready to get started? Great, here we go!
Punch out 3 of each of the different size flowers you have! (If you don't have the punches, find a 5 petal flower on your Silhouette or Cricut to use!)
Stack your petals according to size and then use your paper piercer and pierce straight through the middle. Starting with the smallest size, then push those petals up your paper piercer and move on to the next size until you have all three sizes on your piercer!
Arrange your flowers so that the petals are alternating.
Take your flowers off the paper piercer and insert your brad. Make any last minute adjustments to how the petals are arranged now.
Scrunch up your petals all of them to the middle, then dry them thoroughly with your heat gun! Make sure those petals are dry!
Fiddle with your petals and make sure they are shaped properly. Use your paper pierce to curl the edges of the largest petals down if you want to!
Enjoy your finished product!
